Thread: win xp error

    when i start playing game(soldier of fortune 2 and others) i get this error
    "Stop 0x0000000A or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

    i made some research over it and here's what i got
    "The Stop 0xA message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel interrupt request level (IRQL) that was too high. A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own. This Stop message is typically due to faulty or incompatible hardware or software.".

    any fixes for this????i've tried reinstalling the drivers for my vid card which i think are the 1's causing this problem but not even that works.

    my comp specs are:
    amd athlon xp 1800+ @1.54ghz
    on a gigabyte 7vaxp
    Ati radeon 7500 (64mbs ddr)
    2 512 ddr pc-2700 sticks
    creative SB live 5.1 sound card(which i need a link for the good drivers)
    (normal in case/processor temps are of 30-35-40 C)
    on windiws xp pro

    Go to "Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Event Viewer".
    Click on "System" in left hand pane and then look for all the entries with a red-cross against there name in the right hand pane. double click on them and look for an error just like you just posted.
    This will give you the figures for the sub-type of the STOP error 0xA and might also tell which driver is at fault.
    If you can't make out yourself, post the latest 2-3 errors here and we might see if we can be of any help.
